    I wonder how long it's going to take them to announce her name. I had thought that an old-fashioned English flower name might play into the mix, like Iris or Rose, just because it's not quite as terribly dull as most of the other popular choices. They can still have Elizabeth or Victoria for tradition's sake, though it's worth noting that neither Charles nor Philip landed on George's nameroll.

    Earl Spencer's daughter is Charlotte Diana, so we won't see that. But the interesting move would be any inclusion of Diana at all. The Royals don't seem opposed to manipulative sentimentality, given how they've referenced Diana already--like Kate's inheriting Diana's engagement ring, wearing that blue polka dot dress after giving birth to George, etc. But some folks wouldn't like it at all. Anne would look more prunelike than ever.

    I'm keeping my bets safe: she'll grow up leggy and tall, and will happily lack the major 'derp'/mouth-breather gene so apparent in the Fergie-Andrew spawn. Her resemblance to Pippa Middleton will also be minimal to non-existent.

    I am also waiting to see if they will be brave enough to include the Diana name. I think the ring is on show in case they can't. There will always be reminders of Diana somehow and it's understandable.

    Kate Middleton's midwives who delivered the Princess revealed | Daily Mail Online

    Call the midwives! The calm duo who delivered the Princess after striking up close rapport with Kate


    • Midwives Arona Ahmed and boss Jacqui Dunkley-Bent delivered Princess
    • They struck up close rapport with Duchess of Cambridge during first birth
    • Team of surgeons were led by royal gynaecologist Mr Guy Thorpe-Beeston
    • Kate gave birth to a girl just 154 minutes after being admitted to hospital

    By Valerie Elliott and Nick Craven for The Mail on Sunday
    Published: 16:54 EST, 2 May 2015 | Updated: 05:04 EST, 3 May 2015

    The unsung heroines of the Royal birth were midwives Arona Ahmed and her boss, Jacqui Dunkley-Bent, Professor of midwifery at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, who together delivered the Princess.

    According to hospital insiders, the professor, 51, had struck up a close rapport with the Duchess of Cambridge when she delivered Prince George two years ago at St Mary's Hospital, West London.

    Mrs Ahmed, 44, had missed out on that occasion because her shift ended before the birth and she was replaced by another midwife.


    The unsung heroines of the Royal birth were midwives Arona Ahmed (right) and her boss, Jacqui Dunkley-Bent (left)

    But yesterday, Mrs Ahmed helped at the princess's birth, while the team of suited male surgeons, led by Mr Guy Thorpe-Beeston, Surgeon Gynaecologist to the Royal Household, looked on.

    Kate had a meticulous birth plan. She had opted to be seen first by the midwives, and as a source said: 'What the duchess wants, the duchess gets.'

    So while the male doctors waited in a nearby room, it was the red-uniformed midwives – the colour denotes their seniority – who monitored Kate as her contractions progressed and supported Prince William.

    Both women are experienced, unflappable and have the full confidence of the obstetricians.

    It is understood a team of three midwives has been on standby for more than a month to cover three shifts over a 24-hour period should Kate have been admitted early.

    By establishing a specific team for the Royal birth, Kate and William ensured that the care of other patients, NHS or private, was not affected or disrupted.

    Given the speed of Kate's delivery – just 154 minutes after being admitted to the hospital – it is likely she was in labour at home for some hours before feeling the need to be with her medical team.

    I'm sure she's also wearing one of those ginormous maxi-pads they put you in. Ah, memories.

    She does look great and the baby looks awfully good for such a fresh 'un. Kate is doing a great job popping them out, and George is a real cutie.

    The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have said they are 'hugely grateful' for all the warm wishes they have received since the birth of their daughter.

    In a statement issued on the couple's behalf they said the congratulations of people around the world meant 'a great deal' to them as thousands continued to celebrate the little princess's birth.

    Born yesterday at 8.34am, the baby girl - whose name is still not known - was taken home to Apartment 1A at Kensington Palace by her proud parents last night.

    This morning Kate and William's relatives flocked to meet her, with Carole and Pippa Middleton the first to arrive. They were followed by Charles and Camilla who beamed with delight as they drove themselves past the palace gates.

    The Queen is staying privately in Sandringham where she will remain until Tuesday. She will likely meet the baby, her fifth great-grandchild, when the Cambridges decamp to Norfolk tomorrow.

    The princess, whose name has still not been revealed, was born at the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital yesterday weighing 8lbs and 3oz.


    Prince Charles waved cheerily as he left Kensington Palace after spending an hour-and-a-half getting to know his new granddaughter


    The Duchess of Cornwall smiled proudly for the cameras as she and Prince Charles left Kensington Palace with Prince Charles this afternoon


    Prince Charles and Camilla arrived at Kensington Palace shortly after Carole and Pippa Middleton to visit the newborn princess


    Prince Charles told earlier in the week of his desire for a little granddaughter. He was among the first to visit the little princess in London today


    Prince Charles offered a slight smile as he drove himself passed the palace gates in an Audi estate car with the Duchess of Cornwall in the passenger seat


    Kate's mother and sister were the first of the royal couple's relatives to visit the newborn baby who was brought home to Kensington Palace last night just ten hours after being born


    Driving past the world's media in a black Range Rover, Kate's mother and sister arrived at the palace at around 11.30am on Sunday morning


    Carole Middleton looked after Prince George yesterday afternoon as his mother was in labour. She is thought to have left Kensington Palace when the 21-month-old was collected by his father to go to the hospital


    Carole and Pippa Middleton arrived at Kensington Palace at around 11.30am to meet the baby princess for the first time this morning



    Kate's father Michael Middleton arrived at Kensington Palace this afternoon shortly before 2pm to meet his granddaughter for the first time


    Mr Middleton failed to raise a smile as he drove himself through the palace gates this afternoon to join his wife, daughters and granddaughter


    The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh were seen leaving St Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham this morning. They are staying privately in Norfolk this weekend and will return to Buckingham Palace on Tuesday

    DUKE AND DUCHESS THANK PUBLIC FOR THEIR WARM WISHES

    A statement released on behalf of the royal couple this afternoon said:

    'The Duke and Duchess are hugely grateful for the messages of congratulations they have received from people all over the world.

    'It means a great deal to them that so many people have celebrated the arrival of their new daughter.'



    Cheers and chants of 'Princess! Princess!' rang out from the hundreds of well-wishers and tourists gathered outside the palace and the hospital as soon as the news was announced


    A name for their new daughter is yet to be revealed, although it took two days for officials to announce the name of Prince George in 2013


    This is the moment the family first stepped through the doors of the Lindo Wing with Prince William helping his wife down the steps


    The Duchess looked remarkably well rested and groomed just a few short hours after giving birth to the little princess and even wore high heels for her appearance


    William carries his baby daughter in her car seat to their family car before strapping her safely in the back to return to Kensington Palace


    Earlier in the afternoon Prince George offered a shy wave as he arrived at the Lindo Wing with his father to meet his little sister for the first time


    The blonde-haired toddler, who is 21 months old, was sporting a side parting. His ensemble - a blue jumper with a white collared shirt underneath - matched William's outfit, but George also wore blue shorts, blue pulled up socks and black shoes




    William planted a kiss on his little boy's head as they waved from the steps of the Lindo Wing yesterday afternoon before disappearing into the hospital to join Kate and the newborn princess




    After lifting his son out of his car seat Prince William attempted to walk into the hospital holding hands with the toddler but was quickly seen picking him back up after a little persuasion

    That's exactly what happened to me. Did anyone every explain why it happened? I had no idea this could occur and I looked bigger because of the swelling after the delivery than before. It was awful.

    Kate really does look amazing and my experience was the exact opposite. I went into labour with my son on a Thursday evening and didn't deliver until Sunday at noonish. By that time I was beyond exhausted and looked like I had been hit by an ugly stick. The video my father took when he came in to see my son confirms it. My lips were so dry that I had blood on my front tooth and my hair looked like it had been styled with a whipper snipper. I was in the hospital for at least 4 days and looked beyond horrific for weeks. At least my son looked amazing! Ah, the sweet memories.

    Me too. Water weight, I guess. I actually weighed 5 lbs. more the day after my daughter was born. Pfffft. Overall, I tell her it was worth it.

    I looked like I was still 7/8/9 months pregnant after 4 days in the hospital (c-section).

    I would think that Earl Spencer would have given Diana's boys a chance to use the name Diana first. Of course, I guess he figured that would never happen.
